Easiest Potato Soup

What you need: 

4 smallish potatoes, peeled and chopped to 1" cubes
1 carrot, peeled and chopped to 1" cubes
water and/or vegetable broth, as needed
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon oil
nondairy milk, optional
salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. More than cover potatoes and carrots with water or vegetable broth in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Saute onion in oil until brown.
2. When potatoes are soft, dump out most of the cooking water except for the last couple of inches, and dump in the onions. Set aside a few chunks of potatoes and some of the onions, then blend the big pot of potatoes and onions with a hand-held blender or mixer, or use a food processor or blender, being very careful not to splash!
3. Add more water, vegetable broth, or milk as needed for desired soup-like consistency. Mash the set-aside potatoes a little, then add them and the onions back to the big pot and stir. Add salt and pepper, to taste.

Preparation Time: 
about 25 min

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I love this soup! Meat eating hubby tends to add sausage to his - but I won't hold that against him.

I cooked the potatoes with a few sprigs of freshly picked rosemary,  they are in the potato water, now... waiting to see if I need it... sauteed the onions in Earth Balance instead of oil, seasoned with garlic powder and dill, finely chopped about 6 cloves of garlic which I added to the potato mixture uncooked,  mashed it all with a potato masher, added the browned onions and freshly chopped garlic.  Mashed it all together, then added a box of chickenless chicken broth, slowly .... mashing then stirring... also added freshly ground sea salt and black pepper and 1/4 cup nutritional yeast... it is now simmering... to blend all the flavors... Will top with chopped green onions and would also add the "Bacon" made from tofu, soy sauce and liquid smoke on this site if I had any... It is soooooo yummy!!! :D  I think that is all the changes...  I also think it needs more... but it is a yummy start... Thanks for sharing!!! :D :)>>>

I just ate this for lunch and it was friggin awesome! adding back the the mashed potatoes makes it extra delicious and creamy. I also reserved a couple chunks of potato and carrot to add back in= chunky and extra awesome. love it.

I was really excited about this recipe, but when I made it, it was just not what I was looking for.  I used russet potatoes, carrots, celery, onions, and mushrooms.  And I added some "Better than Bouillion" to the water the potatoes were in. 
In the end, it was just not as creamy or as flavorful as I wanted, even though I added soy milk and nutritional yeast.  *sad face*

Just made it for my girlfriend and I. I doubled the recipe and still had barely any leftovers, that is how delicious this soup is!! I added some mushrooms and garlic to the onions. I had no vegetable broth so I only used water and soy milk... it still tasted wonderful! I served it with 3 slices of cucumber and pepper. YUM!

I haven't had creamy potato soup like this since pre-vegan days, it was perfect!

Just made it, and it was really easy even for a totally inexperienced cook like me. I doubled the potatoes, put in a whole onion, leek and a clove of garlic and boiled the potato and carrot in vegetable broth. For seasoning, I added cumin, and it's super yummy ;)b The rest of my massive batch will go in the freezer, so I'll have something at hand during the school week.

this is simply amazing. i had a few things i needed to use up so i tossed in some sliced mushrooms and some spinach and some tofurky italian sausages. and toonnss of garlic. and i also added some earth balance because i wanted it to taste rich and super fatty. and i added the rosemary suggested and when i boiled my potatoes in broth i added some bay leaves and chunks of onions and the carrots.
this came together much faster than i had anticipated and it was exactly what i needed today staying home from work sick.
thanks for the recipe

This is the first soup I have ever made from scratch and it was SUPER EASY! I did use a carrot however you can not taste it, I decided to put the the ingredients in the food processor because I love creamy soup. I also used  plain soy milk and vegetable  broth to make it a more soup like consistency. I also added a lot of crushed black pepper because I love that, salt and about two tablespoons of earth balance and it is sooooo yummy! :D

this soup was in deed very easy and so quick. i didn't have carrots so i sauteed some frozen broccoli with the onion. i also did no peel the potatoes because i was in a hurry. after the potatoes boiled, i just added the broccoli and onions and uesd my sad little braun hand blender and mashed it all together. i added soymilk and water to get the consistency i wanted. this is a seriously good soup!
